Pack Camps - Rising 5th-6th Grades

Students who are entering 5th or 6th grade are eligible to attend our brand new Pack Camp run by Saint Ignatius educators and senior camp counselors.  Each week of Pack Camp will have plenty of fun games and activities, will center around a learning theme (STEM, Global Citizenship, Art & Writing, Chicago History, and more!), and will include a field trip somewhere in our great city of Chicago! 

Pack Camp runs from 8:30 am to 12:00 pm daily.  Students may be dropped off as early as 7:30 am and wait in our cafeteria, Tully Hall.  Tully Hall is supervised until 1:00 pm each afternoon.  Food will be for sale from Quest, our food provider, at lunch (cash only).

5th and 6th grade students are also welcome (and encouraged!) to register for afternoon co-curricular and athletic camps that run each day from 12:30 to 2:30 pm.

Cost
One week of Pack Camp is $200 or $185 per week if a student is registered for three or more total weeks of Pack Camp.  All who register a 5th or 6th grade student for three or more total weeks of Pack Camp should enter the code PackCampDiscount in the 'alternate payment code' at checkout.
